NEWS RELEASE ISSUED BY PINAMONTI PHYSICAL THERAPY AND WELLNESS CENTER

PINAMONTI PHYSICAL THERAPY IMPLEMENTS AQUATIC THERAPY PROGRAM WITH THE ADDITION OF THEIR HYDROWORX 2000 AQUATIC THERAPY POOL.

Pittsburg, KS May 19, 2014

Pinamonti Physical Therapy, in Pittsburg, Kansas, have expanded their physical therapy services with the edition of the state-of-the -art HydroWorx 2000 Aquatic Therapy Pool. This is the first HydroWorx pool available in the Pittsburg area and will greatly benefit the health of the people of Southeast Kansas.

The HydroWorx Aquatic Therapy Pool is highly specialized, its floor is an underwater treadmill, the depth and speed of which is adjustable. The pool is also equipped with underwater cameras that allow the patient and therapist to monitor the patient’s movement. The buoyancy of the water allows a patient to move with little to no stress on their joints and muscles. The warm water also assists in muscle relaxation, increased range of motion, and flexibility.

Aquatic Therapy is ideal to treat patients sooner than they could be treated with land-based therapy and even allows for therapy to take place just days after surgery. It helps the patient to regain function sooner and has the potential for less long term complications.

Fibromyalgia, arthritis, back pain, total joint replacement, generalized muscle weakness, and stroke are just some of the conditions that can be treated with aquatic therapy. Physical conditioning, for both patients as well as specialized athletic training, is aided by resistance jets built into the pool.

Pinamonti Physical Therapy’s HydroWorx Aquatic Therapy Pool is a major advancement in their physical therapy offerings and a much needed health care tool for the people of Pittsburg and the surrounding areas.
